FULL full reveal at the historic Hamilton-Holly House on St. Mark's Place
Last month around this time, workers removed the construction netting and scaffolding from 4 St. Mark's Place — aka the Hamilton-Holly House, circa 1831 — after nearly two years of renovations. However, the plywood remained, covering the ground-floor and entrance.
Now, though, as you can see in the top photo, workers have taken that away as well.
As previously noted, the renovation of the landmarked building between Second Avenue and Third Avenue included an expansion in the back of the building, doubling the number of residential units from three to six.
Wanyoo, a Shanghai-based cyber cafe chain, reportedly signed a lease for the garden space. The parlor space is also available for a retail tenant. (Until February 2016, 4 St. Mark's Place housed Trash & Vaudeville for 41 years. The store relocated to 96 E. Seventh St.)
The Hamilton-Holly House was once owned by Alexander Hamilton’s son. The Federal-style townhouse changed hands for $10 million in the spring of 2016.
